Village in Ivory Coast

Girls carry water and other goods on their heads

Have you missed me? I’ve certainly missed having an internet connection. My last iffy connection was 10 days ago in Kumasi in central Ghana. We’re currently in Yamoussoukro, the capital of the Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire).

Travel has been slow. The dirt roads have been seriously eroded, while tarmac roads have been riddled with potholes and huge broken patches. Makes for a bouncy ride. I really should invest in a sports bra.

This truck avoids traffic ‘calmers’ by driving around them. We did a zigzag through them

The internet has been broken, non-existent or terribly slow.

We’ve passed through major towns, but mostly we’ve seen national parks, villages and countryside. Here’s a taste of some of our fascinating views in the Ivory Coast. Stay tuned for more.

P.S. We’re enjoying it all, except for the incredible heat. Hitting 40°C (104°F) most days.
